Question about 1988 Chrysler LeBaron

1 Answer

We bought a 1988 Chrysler LeBarron and cannot seem to get HOT air to blow. It is barely warm and we've replaced the thermostat, radiator, heater valve and we have checked the heater core and it has great flow through it so we know its not plugged. What else could it be.

Could be thermostat. Even though you had it replaced the recommened temp is 192. You probably have a thermostat with an alternative temp of 160 or 180. This will make your car run alot cooler than it should.

My 2004 ford F 350 is not blowing hot air when running at an idle. Its starts too get warm after I start driving. What could be wrong?


Check your coolant level. May be low. Possible restriction in heater core or radiator. Possible air pocket trapped inside. I believe there is a heater core bypass valve that is actuated electronicly. It may be stuck, causing a restriction. It will be located on one of the coolant hoses coming from the firewall.

My heater will not blow hot air in my 1999 Chrysler Cirrus


When the coolant flush was done, did you have the thermostat changed as well? I would have the thermostat replaced. If the temperature gauge was reading properly, but you still had warm, not hot air, it would lean more towards the heater core being clogged, but that deosn't seem to be the issue your having, so i would go with the thermostat replacement. And whereever you have the repairs done at...make sure they fully bleed all the air out of the cooling system, this could also cause poor warm-up / heating problems. Hope this helps...

Since your blower is working and it is a heat issue,thats where we'll start,First thing is have you checked the coolant level in the radiator when engine is cold,make sure it is filled to top,next verify you have coolant in reserve ,Start your van and get it up to normal operation temperature,If your heat gauge on the dash works correctly it should be 190 degrees,Now lift the hood and locate the two heater hoses going into the heater assembly at the fire wall,Both hoses should be hot to hold on to,if both are hot and no heat inside your problem will be the blend air door in heater assembly.
if neither hose is that hot you need to replace the thermostat in the engine to get it up to 195 degrees.
if one hose is hot and one is luke warm then the heater core is blocked and to blame. hope this helps you

did you check the fluid level by removing the rad. cap? Radiator should be full to top. If Chryslers are low on coolant, the heater will not blow warm air.

Heater takes forever to start blowing hot air


You probably have a bad thermostat - the one that controls water flow to the radiator. It's supposed to stay closed until the engine reaches proper operating temperature. But when they fail, it's usually in the open position so the water circulate to the radiator all the time. The engine takes longer to warm up, and you shiver in the meantime. It does eventually get hot - it just takes a lot longer. I bet if you replace that thermostat you'll be toasty in no time. As for the cigarette lighter, your portable heater may have blown the fuse.

Heater blowing not so hot


How hot this gets is often regulated by the engines ability to properly heat up. This is controlled by the engine thermostat. Alot of times, people who have an overheating problem simply remove the thermostate without replacing it. This does not allow the engine to heat up properly (it actually is running too cold) thus the water coolant does not heat us. result, barely warm air through cabin heater.
